Did I ever tell you my Grampa's dream?

"I had a dream! My ass was a potato
patch and you were a hog rootin' in it!"

Hey Absinthespoon, I've had that same dream. I don't remember seeing you, though.

Yep, Last exam was 1994 and I was one hour late. It was a long night. I show up with my hair all a mess and people are filing out that finished early. (I always hated those holier than thou bastards for finishing early) - The Instructor fought with me for another 5 minutes telling me that I wouldn't have enough time to take it, but he let me...just to graduate, I'm sure.

I've been out for 10 years. I guess it never goes away. They should come up with a name for that dream. Maybe "pas deja vous" or "post-examaphobia". I guess whatever you anxieties are, they translate into that scenario. I too would tie one on after finals. In my case, it was usually to forget and not to celebrate. Congratulations to you.

Yeah I've been done with finals since 1978. I still have that goddam nightmare about realizing I am late for the final, and I forgot to attend the last 2 months of classes. Never actually happened, just an irrational fear.

I'm done with finals, too; been done with them since 1995. I'm still celebrating, though!

You are a grad student? Thats cool...Thats where I am trying to get to. But with B's that just doesn't seem like it will happen to me. I keep pounding away on the books but these proffs are relentless. Good to hear you did so well.

I finished my last final on Tuesday. I needed a 30% on it to maintain my A average for Site Engineering, but I think I got about a 92 or 94%.

I'm celebrating by rearranging the furniture and creating a filing system for myself. I'm moving toward Minimalism . . . Perhaps because I'm ever so tired of Slobism.

Anyone else done with finals or finishing them up? My last final tonight ran from 8 till 11 and now I am gonna sit here and get hammered. Just a forewarning in case I get a little saucy.
